As much as I love the original LP's gradient green vibe, I also dig how regular Yes cover artist Roger Dean was able to reimagine it his way for this box with an icy-blue hue. Panegyric's "Definitive" philosophy is one that all high-grade, high-ticket reissues should follow, imo. This way, purists can salivate over the original 2. If you could have a giant cauldron with the music in it, and somebody actually dropped you in the cauldron—well, that's what I love about his 5.

Roundabout is very single worthy though, even though I dont like the song. Even though this is probably their best album, I think its still pretty bad imo. Yes Fragile The Fish - Yes - Fragile / Close To The Edge (CD). Yes was formed in Birminham, England in From the start they had become part of the 70's prog rock scene along with such greats as King Crimson, and Genesis.
Throughout the years, they have stood the test of time and have seemed to become more popular all the time. Fragile released in December Reached number seven on England's album charts and number four in America.
The lead single "Roundabout" had become the most popular Progressive Rock song up to that point in time. Fragile is the first Yes album to also feature Rick Wakeman. Fragile was completed within a two month time period. Part of this reason was because they needed to pay for Wakeman's new equipment The Fish - Yes - Fragile / Close To The Edge (CD) the other part was there was only four songs on the album that featured the group as a whole.
The others were single member efforts. Roundabout - This is probably the most popular song Yes has ever released. It starts off The Fish - Yes - Fragile / Close To The Edge (CD) a very recognizable acoustic guitar "riff".
Afterwards a great bass line comes in and the song goes from there. But the keyboards really blend in nicely with everything and bring a great overall feel to the song. After a while the song changes completely and starts to get a little darker than before.
A nice change up, but afterwards goes back into the opening guitar line. The goes on to have an amazing keyboard solo. Then they go right to the main riff again. Great song, definitely a highlight. Nothing really too special either but it seems to be just a filler track. I don't really care for this track. It is very short, barely even a minute and a half. It song only consists of a simple guitar beat, drums, and Jon Anderson singing "Tell the Moondong, Tell the Marchhare".
The song starts off with the blowing of wind in the background, then some good drumming. From there the song goes off, the song is led by an absolutely awesome guitar riff from Steve Howe the whole song is just centered around this riff for the first half of the song. About halfway through, the break comes and a beautiful piano arrangement is delivered by Wakeman.
Afterwards Anderson's trademark singing comes in and blends in so well with the piano. From there they go right back into the main riff and after that goes on for a while there is an interesting guitar solo towards the end. Great song. But Yes managed to fit a great deal of music in.
Very proggish and sounds great. It has really interesting guitar work, just a little too short. Almost sounds like it could come straight out of a video game, odd enough. The song slows down a little bit, then the focus seems to go to Anderson's lyrics which I find really wonderful on this track. Then after that it goes straight back into the main theme and finishes up. Very good song. Then that is the real center point for the rest of the song.
It is a really great song, but the problem like some other songs on Fragile is that it is too short.
